Ok, but in
Craig Carl mentioned that "glusterfs doesn't respond well to HUP",
which is why I ask the question.  So as of 3.1.1 is HUP considered
safe or not?

AFAIK, there is nothing in the docs that cover this issue, so it would
at least be good to describe until such time as 
<http://bugs.gluster.com/cgi-bin/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=2053> is

Orian mentioned using copytruncate via logrotate as an option.  If 
that is necessary, I'd suggest that it be documented as well (instead
of HUPing via logrotate).
